It's not any more dead than it was when Pearl was pining for Rose Quartz the entire rest of the series. Ships don't die until somebody dies, and even then you can still ship it. Just because it isn't canon/contradicts canon, doesn't mean that it's dead.
THIS is why I ship Gruvia. Although I also ship Gray with Ultear. I mean, in a way they're family friends. They have the same Mom and can use the same magic. And the way Gray helps Ultear come back to the light is beautiful. And then she gives her life to save him and the others and he sees her as an old lady and recognizes her and is about to jump out of the wagon and go to her, but she just shakes her head, telling him to go. It was both the saddest and most beautiful thing I've ever seen.
